20 years at what? An electrician?
Sorry, but you envision designing audio components and speakers (subwoofers)?
Take all of the courses you can, but if you haven't come close to attaining that goal (after 20 years) and have to ask here... I think you missed the lunch bell.
Have you designed/built anything yet?

In order to compete with major manufacturers you need to offer something new and innovative. Industry education is specifically attained by going to WCES each January in Vegas, going to CEDIA training and gaining all industry certifications.

I would agree with the physics, since you will be dealing with waves, sound waves, and building enclosure to manipulate those waves.
If you can build something that sounds good, really good, then all you need is advertising to sell them.
